Nottingham launches three fixed rate loans


Nottingham Building Society has launched three 95 per cent LTV fixed rate loans after brokers called for greater choice.

The first is fixed for two years at 3.29 per cent with a £199 booking fee and £800 arrangement fee.

The second is also fixed for two years, but at 3.59 per cent with no fees.

The final product is fixed for five years at 3.99 per cent with no booking or arrangement fee.

Bridging is no longer a dirty word

It’s not that long ago that short-term finance, or, perhaps more specifically, bridging finance were viewed as dirty words by mortgage brokers. The rates on offer were punishing, meaning there were only a handful of situations where it would be appropriate to arrange one. Some lenders didn’t exactly uphold great reputations for service standards either; […]


Almost nine in 10 employers admit failings with post-DRA compliance

The default retirement age (DRA) was abolished more than three years ago, yet new research from Jelf Employee Benefits suggests that the vast majority of employers still have some way to go to fully understand, comply and communicate the landmark legislation change that prevents older employees being forcibly retired on the grounds of age alone.
